Happy Birthday Cheeky Monkey

I've had some time to have a fun little play with the MFT Happy Birthday Circle Frame Die-namics from Therese  (thanks love!) and an older Clearly Besotted set called 'Cheeky Monkey' - love the sweet little images in this set.

I ink blended the HB die-cut with a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks - so.darn.easy - they blend like butter as Laura Bassen would say lol.

Being a Teacher Librarian means giving out bookmarks and I often make them for the kids at school. I couldn't wait to get my hands on these sweet goodies and I have made 60 bookmarks so far. I won't show you the whole 60 but you'll get a taste of the variety of bookmarks I made on the video below.

Some with patterned papers...
